Jane Hoover Field and Tennis Courts

Project Overview

In May 2011, the Elizabethtown Area Education Foundation, in partnership with the Elizabethtown Area School District and with the help of over 40 volunteers, launched the Investing in Our Children, Our Community, Our Future $3.7 Million Capital Campaign. The Campaign's goal was to raise private money through individual and business contributions that would be used to improve school district athletic facilities with no impact on the District's millage rate. At that time, the overuse of existing District athletic fields, coupled with an ever-increasing demand for more access, had created an environment that was overwhelmed and unsustainable. As such, the partnership with the Foundation sought to rectify the problem by installing synthetic turf on Jane Hoover Field, repairing the track and field complex, and replacing the tennis courts.
